2015 CALENDAR
The young people of St Andrew's have
produced a calendar based on the theme of
Creation for 2015. The photographs featured
reflect creation in each of our 1% Appeal
countries: Palestine, India, Kenya and also
from Madagascar, the base of the Opt-In
medical charity. Copies of the calendar will be
available to view and orders taken each
Sunday in October in the car park entrance
after the service. The young people are
asking for a minimum donation of £8 to cover
the cost of printing; however you may give
more if you wish. All the profits will be divided
between the four charities mentioned. For

morning youth team Chris Torrance, Helen
